Kristen & Joe in Italy: San Gimignano in Tuscany

We are now in San Gimignano in Tuscany, Italy.  It is a tiny medieval town surrounded by vineyards.  What is interesting about this place is that it has changed very little since the 13th century.  It is set among high walls and no cars are allowed in.  It also has 14 medieval skyscrapers.  In those days, all the rich families all tried to outdo each other and build taller and taller.  Only 14 towers survive today, but there used to be 70.

This is a small town, so it’s very easy to cover in a day.  Joe and I spent our time here walking around the fortifications, visiting the shops, and I went to the top of one tower while Joe practiced his music and juggling.
